9:35am
cleaner than what you will find in most office buildings because it is circulated through hospital-grade filters. but airports are still germy environments. the hot zone includes the row in front of you, the row behind you, and all of these areas here. the tray table, the seat pocket. anywhere that's likely to have caught a sneeze. the airport, with those crowded ticket counters, tsa checkpoints and food courts is an even bigger petri dish for disease. no air filters there but plenty of coughs and sneezes. >> the best way to stay healthy is to keep your hands clean and for traveling that's a sanitizer. >> a single sneeze can produce 30,000 droplets that can spread as far as six feet. not exactly anyone's idea of spreading holiday cheer. david wright, abc news, los angeles. >> controversy for the california health exchange. covered california is reportedly sharing data with insurance acts

9:37am
headphones made by a big machine. >> i have been wearing hearing aids since in elementary school. >> that might be one were the last times he does this because it isn't a hearing clinic, it's a start-up this you can order online and set up at home. >> we plan to offer an alternative to what's out there. >> he knows all about what is out there. he founded the company that created lyric, the tiny hearing aid you wear all the time. now a new device, i-hear that costs a few hundred dollars instead of a few of several thousands. >> making it more affordable. the hearing aids plug into your computer and guides you through a hearing test and guides you through adjustments. don't let the size fool you. early test subjects say they like it a lot better than the big ones. >> i hear the fluorescent lights, i hear the computers, i hear your watch, i hear everything. >> the parts inside the device are incredibly small. underneath the microscope you see on the screen the image of the circuit so tiny it's about
9:38am
the size of a grain of dirt under your fingernail. >> everything is done under a microscope. >> it takes steady hands and tweezers to put it together. there's nothing cheap about it. they keep the costs low by cutting the hearing clinic out of the equation which doesn't sit well with everyone. >> there's a chance they could have a tumor or something else wrong. >> audiologist mark sanford ford said hearing loss could be a sign of something more serious. he said he wishes they would leave the initial exam to a professional. >> it sounds pretty good, but they should get a professional exam and then future adjustments, they could do those online. but for tyrone, price is king. >> i'm one of those guys this grew up in a working poor family and we couldn't afford hearing aids. so i'm excited to the fact this is going to be something your average consumer can afford. >> in san leandro, jonathan bloom, abc7 news. coming up, a treatment once reserved for sports superstars is being used to treat hair loss. but is it a fad or a real fit? why your own blood could be the key. and taking a live look outside in san jose.
9:39am
it's 9:38. bright, blue skies. a little bit of clouds as you can see. 35 degrees in san jose. you will get up to 49 later. lisa argen
9:40am
9:41am
>> a live look from our emeryville camera. it looks gorgeous, doesn't it? blue skies, blue water, the golden gate bridge. notice you want to bundle up. a freeze warning overnight everywhere except san francisco. lisa argen has all the details to tell you about other areas coming up in a little platelet-rich plasma or php has grown as way of speed healing. famous athletes, including tiger woods, has used it. now there is a new possibility, using it to promote hair growth. we explain. >> terry lee is in her 60s. she's kept in great shape, but for the last several years she noticed a change she's been unable to control. the steady loss of her hair.
9:42am
>> i noticed a tremendous change, even using the topicals and the lotions and potions, it was just getting increasingly thinner. >> after trying products, she decided to undergo a new and unproven treatment derived from her own body. at revive med spa in milbrae, the doctor takes a sample of her blood and spins it in the centrifuge to extract what is known as platlet-rich plasma or prp. >> what we are hoping for with the prp is to provide the patient with their own growth factors from their platelets and these growth factors will stimulate hair growth and decrease the loss of hair. >> after removing the concentrated plasma, the doctor injects it directly into her scalp. she said she's used the technique to treat both men and women with early signs of success. >> particularly for what we call the female or male pattern baldness which is the front of the hair or the front of the head or the crown. those are the areas that i've seen the greatest success with.
9:43am
>> interest in prp has accelerated in recent years from its use in sports medicine, including the treatment of golfer tiger woods knee injury, to the use as a facial filler. some researchers believe it releases growth factors similar to stem cell therapy. but the benefits for hair loss are still being debated. san francisco dermatologist said there is only been minimal research with one small european study finding an apparent benefit. >> but there aren't any controlled long-term clinical trials on the use of this as a stand-alone treatment for hair loss. >> the doctor said the visual results have been encouraging. these before and after photos of male patients show an apparent thickening of the hair in front and crown. while they were not confirmed by a clinical hair count, the patients believe they are seeing benefits. >> after about a week or two i noticed the areas on my temple that were getting bare started
9:44am
to not seem so thin. >> but keep in mind, it's not cheap. costs range from about $900 for a single treatment to $2,500 for a set of three treatments. >> that was carolyn johnson reporting. prp is being used in conjunction with some hair transplant procedures, but there's no long-term research proving it works. >> 9:44 now. big day ahead. folks gearing up for the niners game. the temperatures? >> well, i knew you would ask that. almost ten degrees below average. we will be once again in the upper 40s. right now we are almost at 40 degrees with a little hazy sunshine. it's a spare-the-air day today. a freeze warning again tonight. but pour san francisco we will talk about the warmup when we return. >> thank you, lisa. stanford has done it again. manhandling arizona state again in the pac-12 title
